    That last line sums up my feelings perfectly, “don’t fuck with celiacs”. Thanks for the laughs when I wish I could punch the marketing group at party city right in the face!

    Tracy is in charge of PR at Hill Holiday.
    Here is Tracy’s email

    Tracy.Brady@hhcc.com

    Here is my email to her
    Tracy;
    How in the hell did the Party City ad that calls an community of millions of autoimmune sufferers gross? How does this ad do anything to differentiate Party City in a good way? There is almost no mention of Party City, itโ€™s all about how gross people with celiac disease are.

    In my haste and anger I forgot to proof read and ad “get approved” after “gross”.
    Maybe somebody else could email her and ask finish my thought

      Sent her all of my best wishes that her calendar would be full and bonuses earned according to her attitude toward the people she just mocked.

      Also, a nice list of Celiac issues and a few beautiful DH pics.

      I’m sure she is reading NONE of her emails for at least the next week, though.

    It’s already non-news. Because, like Trump, can get away with anything. People aren’t passionate anymore. Sad!

    It’s very disheartening to read the comments to the main-stream articles posted about the Party City ad on-line (not the comments here, they are awesome of course). People in the general community actually thought the ad was funny. Seriously why do people think it’s funny to make fun of our diet? “No one had gluten allergy when I was a kid” someone wrote. Like it’s all made up. Thank you Gluten Dude for sticking up for the gluten free community!

    Never ever shop there at part city or other places or support people who donโ€™t respect you.

    Well done dude! We all need to spread the word further right now .

    Yes. Celiac pride and celiac standards!

      Well, at least one day of glutinization. The full three to seven days would be even better-the full experience! Who would want to miss days of achy joints, depression, fatigue, painful abdominal bloating so your on the bed on your hands and knees gasping in pain, and the best part… Peeing out your bum every five to fifteen minutes-FOR DAYS!

      I would also like to say, the commercial had the gluten free options/crackers next to the gluten items. Wouldn’t touch them with a ten foot pole-hello cross contamination!

    The line “You can hide โ€˜neath your pillow/And not answer your phones” reminds me of a similar one from Bruce’s Thunder Road and knowing how I know you from this blog, GD, I’m sure you were going for that sort of angle.

    So Tina, climb in, it’s a Party City full of losers, we’re pulling out of here to win.

    The ad is still being played, despite the “apology” and retraction from Party City!
